Joi -Joi

The Difference You Could Make...

Joi Joi was 5 years old and weighed just 10kg when she arrived at Sarnelli House in Northeast Thailand.  Joi Joi's parents both passed away from AIDS.  Upon her arrival at the orphanage.  Joi Joi was diagnosed with HIV, TB and dysentery.

You made it possible for the carers at Sarnelli House to offer Joi Joi a loving home and professional care...

Joi Joi is now 16 years old.  She is a happy and healthy teenage girl.  Her HIV is well-controlled and her outlook on life is positive.  Joi Joi studies hard and loves to read.  She now has great opportunites ahead of her.

Because of her illness it is difficult for Joi Joi to put on weight, but she has a healthy appetite and enjoys food provided by your donations.

Your contribution to the Thai Children's Trust Rice Bucket Challenge will ensure that Joi Joi, and thousands of other children like her, do not go hungry.

Together we can achieve our goal.

What is the Rice Bucket Challenge?

We believe that no child should go hungry. We need to raise £250,000 per year to keep all of the children on our Nutrition Programme fed. So, we launched the Rice Bucket Challenge: a chance for all of our donors and partners to come together to ensure that these children get the essential nutrition they need, every day.

Did you know?

Over 4,000 children benefit from our nutrition programme; each one receiving wholesome meals owing to your donations.

Over £2 million already sent

Since 2008, you’ve enabled Thai Children’s Trust to send over £2 million to feed orphaned, abandoned, and undernourished children in some of Thailand’s poorest areas. You have paid for thousands of bowls of rice, nutritious vegetables, hearty soups, tasty noodles and much, much more. But the demand never stops.

Every day that a child eats three wholesome meals is a day that they can focus at school, play sports with their friends, concentrate on their homework and go to sleep with full tummies.

This is why your donations are so important to us.
